One World Flag Intern Update
March 3, 2000
(updated on Feb. 19, 2003, to reflect address and administrative changes)
I am writing to all who have written to express interest in interning
and/or volunteering with respect to the One World Flag within
the past year.
There have been a lot of changes in this time period. With this
letter I am prepared to re-introduce the possibility of us working
together if the following coincides with your interest.
There is plenty to be done, and much fun and satisfaction to be
had. And I hope you will decide to come aboard!
First off, any internships and/or volunteering work are virtual.
This means that time may be devoted from wherever you are, by
way of e-mail and other means. There are no in-person, in-house, live-in positions
available at this time.
The purposes of this are many. It is in primary alignment with
the mission of the flag to get people communicating with each
other from all over the world, and taking the message out locally
wherever that may be. There is no public office here in Kansas
out of which people can work. There are no current provisions
for coordinating lodging, transportation, employment, etc. The
time it would take to handle these kinds of details is instead
being spent working on the many projects in the works. And anything
that can be delegated, can be done so just as easily via computer,
e-mail, phone, and fax.
Setting up the interns and volunteers in such a way is meant to
serve as example on a small scale
of that which we wish
to achieve on a large scale.
This website ("http://www.oneworldflag.org")
which was updated in February, 2003, explains some of
this. If you haven't visited for awhile you will see that things
What I can offer is this:
* Tasks that appeal to many interests. These include, but
are not limited to--
- writing press releases
- writing grant proposals
- translating the One World Flag website into your native language
for posting on the website
- giving interviews as a One World Flag spokesperson in your native
- writing articles
- taking pictures
- adding additional web support-- technical, design, otherwise
- and more. If you have specific goals (to practice or to learn),
we will do our best to accommodate you and make this a valuable
* Training in the writing and speaking of the mission and
goals of the One World Flag.
* Ongoing support, and adapting your work with this oprganization
to suit a wider purpose afterward.
* Documentation of your experience, and a letter of
recommendation, and/or completion of paperwork you might need
for school credit.
* Rewarding work, with a team of like-minded individuals from
around the world.
Together we will design a program that you love! We will schedule
tasks/goals/deadlines. I will help you with anything you need
to achieve these tasks. And we will have ongoing follow-ups, critiques,
question and answer, and honing of skills as needed.
Thus, this work can be undertaken by you, at your own pace, on
your own schedule.
This program is truly the purest form of individualized study--
and may be taken on by disciplined, highly motivated, self-starters
You have responded to the idea of possibility inherent
in the mission of the One World Flag. You know deep inside what
is available for all of us
as we begin working together
to achieve higher objectives.
Let's begin working together to-- "Honor the Talents,
Abilities, and Uniqueness in Each of Us, as Strengths that May
Benefit All of Us" "
because we have more in common
as a world, than we have differences between nations."
Let us begin to "Think Bigger!"
Let's get started!
I'll hope to hear from you soon.
P.S. If, in my delay in pulling this program together, I have
lost you to other causes, I hope you will still receive my thanks
for your support, continue to "fly the flag" wherever
you are, visit the site to keep up with the progress, subscribe
to the newsletter, and stay in touch with me.
